Adult Cleaning

There’s very little that’s more important to your dental hygiene than a regular cleaning. To prevent decay, bad breath or other problems, a complete cleaning twice a year goes a long way to extending the life of your smile.

Cleanings at Fort Des Moines Dental are comprehensive, including brushing for plaque, tooth scaling and polishing and debridement if necessary. Regular cleanings allow the professionals at Fort Des Moines Dental to identify and prevent any number of potential problems and protect your mouth.

“I love my smile! The flexible trays that Dr. Patrick made for me made my teeth shine. It was so easy and quick, I’m just upset I didn’t start going to Fort Des Moines Dental five years ago.”
